A woman radar-intercept officer (RIO) disappears at night from an aircraft carrier in the Adriatic Sea. Two lawyers in the JAG Corps of the US Navy, Lt. Harm Rabb and Lt. Caitlin "Kate" Pike, investigate. Two Italian fishermen discover the body of the missing person. Despite resentment and resistance from several sources, Harm and Kate sort through the evidence, and they find the answers. Harm, a former Naval aviator, gets a ride in the back seat in combat aboard an F-14 Tomcat, of the type which he previously flew; while doing so, after the bird sustains damage, and the pilot loses consciousness, Harm flies back to the carrier and makes a successful landing at night.

One of the seaborne locations that the JAG teams frequent is the "USS Seahawk". The United States Navy has never had a ship bearing the name "Seahawk". The "USS Seahawk" is portrayed in the series by CVN-65, the USS Enterprise. See more
In the episode's climax Lt. Rabb elects to fly in the backseat as RIO (Radio Intercept Officer) for the CAG on an important mission, however he is no longer flight certified and would be ineligible to fly. Further the CAG suffers an injury and Rabb flies the aircraft back to the ship. This is impossible as the F-14 does not have flight controls in the rear seat. See more

This just in. One of the Navy, uh, F-14 Tomcats shot down a couple of Serbian MiGs over Bosnia this afternoon. Listen to this, the Radar Intercept Officer in the Tomcat was a woman! Boy, you thought getting shot down by a woman in a bar was bad. Oh, my God!
